The hotel has a view of the mountains surrounding Kandy town, and it is at a high point, but it doesn't have a good view of the mountains, the Temple of the Tooth Relic, and the lake. The rooms are very basic, furniture is dated. It is just better than hostels. It is high up, so it is also a...

We stayed here only one night and our driver booked this hotel for us. It was not good at all! It's very far from the city center up the hill. Therefore, the view is great from some places in the hotel. But not from our room, we looked on the rubbish downstairs. The room was dirty and especially the bathroom...

the front desk service was great. the hotel is a small hike from the town which i did not mind but unfit travelers may struggle to walk up the hill, however tuk tuks are plentiful. the rooms are mid size and a bit dated but clean and services daily. The pool is small but well maintained. The breakfast is great...

Recently stayed at Senani hotel while on an intrepid food experience of Sri Lanka. The location and stunning mountain views where great but our room was tired and need of a refurbish. Plus we looked into rooftop, no mountain views for us! We really enjoyed our breakfast overlooking the mountains. The pool was delightful but very public near the reception...

Did not enough research before booking this hotel. It turned out that the swimming pool was placed in the shadows which was a huge disappointment after a day in a car. Our family room (two kids) was large enough for 4 single beds. Large bathroom that needs a decent scrub around the bath tub edges. No shower curtain turned the...

The hotel location is peaceful and the view from the restaurant is fantastic. The breakfast buffet had a large selection but as always in Sri Lanka the coffee was not up to much. The rooms were serviceable and clean but the bathroom very small. We were on the bottom floor and there was a lot of noise from the kitchen...

The basement room that we got, was quite musty and due to its proximity to the staff quarters, was quite loud. The bathrooms were large and spacious. The restaurant for breakfast was fine but the evening selection and food was not very good. The WIFI was very slow and unreliable. The hotel lies above the city and the views were...

Nice service and staff. Great pool to cool off in. However the bathrooms were extremely mouldy and smelly. The windows didnt open and the Venetians were damaged. So the bathroom never gets air. Sheets too small on single beds. Beds lumpy and thin lumpy pillows too. Stay somewhere else- closer to town.

There is something about Kandy, the name promises a lot, especially the buzzing Temple of the Tooth, yet, it feels a bit overrated. Same can be said about the Senani Hotel. Mountain & lake view from restaurant is great (if you are lucky to have one of the few tables at the edge) but that couldn't be said about the...
